You’ve probably tried everything you can think of to get rid of those annoying wrinkles. Line erasers, anti-wrinkle eye creams, wrinkle erasers, skin creams, Botox – you may have even tried yelling into the mirror, “Be gone, ugly wrinkles!” But when that didn’t work, maybe you gave up. Maybe you feel there’s no hope in seeing those wrinkles disappear. Well, don’t give up. Here’s why…
There are several things you can do to help reduce wrinkles. There’s no one magical formula, but it’s a combination of things – lifestyle, food and drink, amount of sun exposure, vitamins, facial rejuvenation creams, and even the position of your body while sleeping! It sounds like a lot of work, but most of these involve simple things you can do each day to help reduce and prevent wrinkles. Here are some brief pointers.
Daily Lifestyle and Wrinkles
Several things you do in your daily life could be causing excessive wrinkles to appear. For instance, if you are under continuous stress, expect more wrinkles. You should do whatever it takes to reduce stress – even change jobs if necessary. It’s not worth losing your health or good appearance! Another important factor is your intake of liquids, particularly water, throughout the day. Drink water every day to help hydrate your body and skin. Dried-out skin will wrinkle more easily.
Eat a healthy diet abundant with fruits and vegetables, and schedule your meals and exercise each day. Staying on schedule with healthy eating and exercise has been proven in studies to reduce stress.
Also, try to get a good night’s sleep every night. While sleeping, lie on your back instead of on your face. Wrinkles can form overnight as you sleep! Also, avoid smoking, alcohol, and excessive sun exposure. If you work outdoors, wear strong, protective sunscreen on your face and hands.
